Thread the Needle Day

Today (Friday, July 25) was National Thread the Needle Day.  Who knew?  I didn’t yesterday, but I do now.  The internet is a marvelous thing – just full of useless facts you never needed to know!

But that’s beside the point.  The point is how did I celebrate Thread the Needle Day?  With needle and thread, of course!  Imagine that!

BOM-may pieces

I stitched some hexies.  This seems to happen just about every day, although not for long periods.  It’s great for sitting in front of the TV but since I don’t watch much TV this project is taking a looooong time!


I also threaded a beading needle and finished the fringe on this butterfly.  This particular project has been languishing since mid-June.  Today it got finished!


My doll club took a class on making these boxes to display small dolls – or any art/craft/ephemera, really.  Now that my box is finished I need to decide what to display in it.  My finished dolls are all too large.  I guess I will have to make a new one!

Running Out of Time

Entries for the Hoffman Challenge are due in just under two weeks.  Yikes!  At least I have started, but just barely.


She’s got one leg stitched and the head is attached.


I’d better get really busy on the costume, though.  Not something I want to rush.  Since I never seem to plan anything simple, I know there will be lots of detail work. 

Wish me luck!
